Mary Louise: I like how you have put into words,

"yet it has been allowed to be made by unelected, unaccountable, seemingly untouchable mandarins"

The city is a corporation but it derives much of its revenue from taxes from the citizens and businesses. Yet these same groups do not seem to have a voice into any of the processes as to how the money is spent.

The elected officials who are suppose to represent the people needs or should I say balance all the voices, has failed on many levels.

No wonder the voter turnout levels are so low.

I found it an interesting observance that those the untouchable mandarins, the high performing public servants would not wnat live in or near any of these "projects".
